jumper- Forever 21
boots- New Look
I decided to wear this skirt for both my day and evening activities yesterday. I kept my day look very simple with just a soft black jumper, tights and boots, with straight hair and red lips. I really don't like my hair straight anymore, but I knew I wanted to wash my hair in the morning after my workout and curl it for the evening, so straight hair was my only option. I've also started to go with red lips and an eyeliner flick as my standard Saturday face. I get too stressed out reapplying lipstick while I'm at work, so I save a red lip for the weekend. I also thought it would be fun to have different hair and makeup for each of the looks too. I didn't really think these boots were quite right for this outfit but I didn't have an alternative. Yesterday my Dad saw these boots and asked "have you worn the heel down on those boots?", which I have (I've also scuffed a lot of the material off the front), "How do you own a hundred pairs of shoes and end up wearing the same ones over and over?" It must be a gift.
black corset top- Lipsy
leather jacket- H&M
I was going out last night for my friend Shaunagh's birthday so I decided to dress the skirt up for a night out too. This black corset top is part of an outfit I wore for my cousin's wedding 2 years ago from Lipsy that I'd never considered wearing alone before, but I think it's a great way to wear my day skirts for the evening. I also added my trusty leather jacket (another thing I've worn to death; there's a tiny tear in the sleeve and I'm freaking out about it because I don't want to have to try to find a similar one!) and my favourite big boots. I'm a bit disappointed that I paired this skirt with black in both outfits, but I'm excited to try it with lots of other colours, and with mixed prints like Elizabeth did here.
Anyway, I'm off to a family meal (in my new dress!) but I'm taking my Mum to the Lowry Food Festival tomorrow (hurray for bank holidays!) and I'm hoping to take some photos of the yummy food on display.
Have a lovely long weekend!
